I went on at least a six week hiatus from any attempts at running the Vault of Archavon because every time I joined a PUG to give it a shot the opening attempt at taking down Emalon was ugly. Actually, in the interest of honesty, calling it ugly doesn’t do it justice. It was like a brutal crime scene after each attempt with the bodies of his victims strewn all over the place.
I had hoped, all those weeks ago, that taking a break from the instance would allow other people on the server to gear up a bit and increase the likelihood for success. This Friday afternoon I decided it was time to try the Vault again and joined a PUG looking for a few more people to handle the DPS.
Fifteen minutes, 2 tank deaths on trash, and one failed Emalon wipe later the group was disbanded. Unbelievable. This begs the question: Is Emalon still a problem on other servers?
So how are things with Emalon on your own server? Is it a total disaster the majority of the time, with multiple wipes and dropped groups each week, or are things turning around and are you starting to see more successful attempts? Let me know.
